Job Analysis Survey

Traditional job descriptions may list duties to be performed, but lack definitions of the intangibles that result in exceptional job performance. It is not enough to hire bright, educated, and trained people. They must have behaviours, thinking and interests that match the job.

The Job Analysis Survey is used to objectively create and describe a "Job Match Pattern" that serves as a template defining those attributes required to perform successfully in your job. The “Job Match Pattern” definition becomes the measurement against which the predicted suitability of job candidates may be assessed. Studies have shown that Job Match is a more accurate predictor of job success than any of the commonly accepted factors such as education, experience, or job training. When you match people with their jobs, you build productivity and job-satisfaction as you diminish stress, tension, conflict, miscommunication, and costly employee turnover.

The tool measures thinking style, occupational interests, and behavioral traits that are requisites for superior performance in a particular job – choose from thousands of "experienced" Job Match Patterns, customize an existing pattern, or develop your own to reflect your unique job. The report complements a standard job description that details the skills and duties the job requires. Used together, they contain a ‘Total Person’ approach to explaining the requirements of a particular position.

By using the Job Analysis Survey, combined with a candidate assessment, you are assured that the people you place in jobs have a significantly higher likelihood of meeting and exceeding your job performance expectations. As well, retention will definitely increase.

It is a system that fills the gap between perception and reality
when it comes to describing what a particular job
"looks like and what it takes to get the work done."
